The origin of the word casino comes directly from Italian. In Italian, the word means little house or sometimes it can be used to mean country house in Italian. Casa means a house and when a word ends in the letters INO or Ino usually refers to the diminutive. Which means small. For example , a lot of people might know "Bambino. " Bambino means a little baby diminutive. So anytime you have the INO sort of ending it could mean that it's smaller Something is smaller or less. It's a diminutive. Okay. So it is a diminutive form meaning small, so small house. Okay let's continue. The Italians often went to their country house to hang out with friends and enjoy music dancing and gamboling. Okay. Eventually the name stuck for a gambling house. The first European casino was in Venice, Italy which helped in establishing the name casino for gambling houses. So I guess Italy was one of the first ...was the first one to really have a real casino in it. And that's the it got to be known as though like the little house. So that's how the name came about and that stuck ever since that. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye bye.
